EcoFestival

Respect Mother Earth!

 

We are working hard to introduce changes before it is too late to save the planet. We all see the impact of pollution - there is plastic littering our oceans and forests, there is a shortage of natural resources, and the climate change looms over our icebergs. Endangered species and deforestation are threatening bio-diversity of the planet. We want to do our bit and not only spread the word about environmental issues, but also make sure that our festival limits its environmental footprint. 

We pledge to phase out single plastic use, introduce eco-friendly solutions and encourage festival-goers to recycle their rubbish. We count on your help - please take care of your campsites and make sure to dispose of your waste responsibly. 

Making changes for a better future
EcoFestival

We ask you not to leave anything behind and to make sure that the area of your campsite is clean. Remember to bin all waste and to recycle reusable items. Please don't leave your tents or camping equipment on the festival grounds. Pol'and'Rock Festival becomes our home for these couple of days - please remember to take care of it! 

We will be handing out thousands of rubbish bags, and you can take your rubbish to specially designated drop areas. There will be 38 rubbish drop zones, four waste segregation points (you don't have to segregate your waste, make sure to bring only recyclable materials), and you can bring your aluminium cans to 4 designated spots where you will be paid for your cans.  

We are increasing our efforts to encourage you to recycle, and we have pledged to use less single-use plastic.

EcoChange

We are committed to making changes to minimise our environmental impact. We pledged to limit the use of single-use plastic on site of the festival. 

  • Lech beer will be sold in cups made out of 100% recycled materials. They can be 100% recyclable too! 
  • Multi-use beer cups will be available at the Premium Brand Zone. You can purchase a cup for a small fee and use them multiple times. 
  • There will be NO single-use plastic carrier bags available at our merchandise stalls and the shopping alley. 
  • Catering zones will limit single-use plastic. Food and beverages will be served in paper containers. 

 

 

Lech EcoZone

You can bring all recyclable waste to Lech Village (aluminium cans, plastic). Ten most active EcoWarriors will receive an electric scooter for their efforts to keep the festival clean. You will also get rubbish bags there. 

 

Less Waste with Allegro

#LessWaste lifestyle is far from boring. Allegro Zone will be hosting different activities and workshops to show you how to limit your consumption and help save endangered species. You will learn how to make environmentally friendly cleaning products and cosmetics, or win eco gadgets - useful on and off the festival site! 

 

Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola provided the festival with an additional 100 yellow bins for cans and plastic bottles. The main idea is to think - reuse - recycle! 

 

EcoGrafitti with PreZero

PreZero Chill & Eco Zone invites you to take part in an EcoGraffiti session. There will also be a bottle return machine, which will give you gadgets in exchange for your waste! 

 

Lubuskie Zone

The local government will go Eco as well. Workshops on sustainable lifestyle and a recyclomate - a machine which will sort recyclable waste, so you don't have to. You can also leave your bike at a secure bike parking at Lubuskie Zone. Small repairs and maintenance will also be provided. You can leave your bike there throughout the night as well. Parking is open 1-3 August. 

 

EcoForests

Let's help the forests, while we're at it. The forest wardens will provide free rubbish bags. You did so well last summer - shortening the time of forest clean-up from 45 to 31 days! Let's keep up the excellent work.
